Hello, my name is Grace, and in about ten years or so you'll be buying my premortem biographies where they'll be flying off the shelves like Harry Potter on a Summoning Charm spree. Just kidding.

    To Catch a Pirate
    click to go back to the top.

    56th post!

    I really am dying to get my hands on this book, To Catch A Pirate by Jade Parker. I saw it some time ago, when I was stalking Eva Ibbotson's young romances, but I remembered it when surfing Amazon for Harper Bazaar's book (see Wishlist, under Profile) and read the excerpt. Now I'm hooked- especially since many of the reviews declare this perfect summer reading!!

    It's about this girl, Annalisa, who recently lost her mother. She's on a ship with her father bringing gold to an island to build something when their ship is attacked by pirates. Annalisa, hiding, is found by a startlingly handsome young pirate James, and he promises not to steal her mother's necklace, in return for a kiss. Then he leaves, and Annalisa never expects to see him again.

    Surprisingly when they get back her father is jailed for allegedly letting the pirates get away with the gold. Determined to get her father back, Annalisa secures a ship to hunt down James and get him to spill the details on where the pirate captain has hidden the treasure. She finds him quick and manages to capture him -for James has been marooned and deserted by his former captain for letting Annalisa escape- but getting him to cooperate is another matter. As you'd expect, Annalisa starts to fall in love with the pirate.

    Sounds captivating? Totally.

    -Forgot to add Lily Allen's It's Not Me, It's You album to my wishlist. I really like her songs. Going to add it now :D-
